Spurs 103, Warriors 90
Manu Ginobili scored 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter of what could have been his final home game with San Antonio, and the Spurs beat Golden State to avoid a series sweep as coach Gregg Popovich remained out following the death of his wife. LaMarcus Aldridge had 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spurs, but they were willed to the finish by the 40-year-old Ginobili, who has said he will decide in the offseason if he will return for a 17th season. Kevin Durant had 34 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors. Popovich missed his second straight game after his wife, Erin, passed away Wednesday following a prolonged illness.

Seconds earlier, the 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo jumped and reached up with his left arm around Boston’s Jayson Tatum to put back Malcolm Brogdon’s missed layup for the game-winner. Jaylen Brown had 34 points for the Celtics.
